ConclusionThe laparoscopic reverse technique is an alternative approach to face retrocervical or rectovaginal nodules infiltrating the anterior rectal wall. In this technique, the separation of the nodule from the rectal wall is performed at the end of the surgery and not at the beginning as performed within the traditional technique. This enables the surgeon to perform a more precise dissection of the endometriotic nodule from the rectal wall because of the increased mobility of the bowel. The wider range of movements serves as an ergonomic advantage for the subsequent dissection of the lesion from the rectum, allowi...

BOSTON (CBS) – Michigan researchers have found that a traditional Chinese medicine technique may reduce pain in patients with chronic back problems, and it’s not acupuncture. Unlike acupuncture which involves needles, acupressure uses a finger, thumb or device to apply pressure to specific points on the body to treat ailments, including pain. Researchers at the University of Michigan studied 67 volunteers with chronic back pain and found that those who applied acupressure themselves for 27 to 30 minutes a day over six weeks reported less pain and, in some cases, less fatigue. Many people with chronic back pain ...

Chronic musculoskeletal pain and disability dramatically reduce quality and quantity of life worldwide, disproportionately so in low- and middle-income countries. Complementary therapies not typically learned in conventional medical training have much to offer but are under-utilized. Prolotherapy is an injection-based complementary therapy supported by high-quality evidence for osteoarthritis, tendinopathy, and low back pain. Prolotherapy addresses causes of pain and disability at the tissue level, is straightforward to learn, and relies on common, inexpensive material, and requires no refrigeration.

BOSTON (CBS) – For years, experts have said that women tend to have different heart attack symptoms than men, but a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association finds that’s not true. Women have notoriously received unequal care when it comes to diagnosing and treating heart attacks compared to men. One prevailing thought has been that women don’t have the same classic symptoms as men, like chest pain. But when researchers studied the symptoms of people attending an emergency room in England, they found that chest pain was the most common symptom for both men and women. And an equa...
